Feathers application

Hello, I’m fabricating a latex stop motion creature puppet.  I’m curious if I can get decent results by buying a feather boa and using feathers from that.  It’s not a bird creature, more a potential client’s version of a Native American mythical creature so I’m hoping I won’t have to spend alot on chicken or turkey pelts,  thanks!

    It could work, though feather boas have a lot of downy feathers, so that level of "fluff" may be a challenge in stop motion.  It's possible something like hair spray could stiffen them up so they don't move on their own.  You may also be able to strip some of the down.
